Mitchell Farms

650 Leaf River Church Road
Collins, MS 39428


About Us:

Today, Mitchell Farms embraces approximately 1,500 acres, located deep in the piney woods of southeast Mississippi, very near the Leaf River. If you know the area, the farm headquarters is close to the intersection of the old Jackson Military Road, and Leaf River Church Road, which follows the Three Chop Way.

The farm was started by Dennis and Nelda in 1960. Mitchell Farms has grown row-crops since the beginning, got into peanuts in the 70s, began vegetables in the 80s and got into Agritourism in 2006.

Currently, we farm corn, wheat, soybeans, peanuts, & pine plantations. We sell green and dry peanuts in the fall, and pumpkins in September and October.

Mitchell Farms is owned by Dennis and Nelda Spell Mitchell, their son Don Mitchell, and his wife Jo Lynn Mitchell. Dennis and Nelda have three children, Don, Dale, and Beverly.

Beverly Mitchell Bakalyar, whose home is in Tampa, Florida, returns home throughout the year to help out. Dale Mitchell and his wife Charlotte are both registered nurses, and have their own farm and cattle operation in Seminary, MS.

You’ll find several grandchildren and great-grandchildren, neighbors, and friends around at various times helping out when things get busy.
